For the wedding itself—Those of you who fancy a more done-up affair should consider the Hudson Hotel's all-inclusive "Wedding Package." Prices start at $275 per person, with a minimum of 80 guests—which is indeed a lot of money, but then again, weddings are expensive!—and include use of the hotel's 24th Apartment (wood-burning fireplace, and a 2,000 square foot tented terrace) for the ceremony itself. Meals included in the package are as follows: dinner the night before, pre-ceremony cocktail hour, and three-course dinner in the 24th Apartment.
For Times Square fun—From now through September, the Westin New York is offering traditional rooms for $259 on Sunday nights during their Special Rates Sunday promotion—a small, but appreciated, reduction from the usual $299 rate. Sadly, none of the Westin's super-cool 126 Atrium Club rooms are included in the offer. Now, that would have been special. Additionally, the hotel's impressive Presidential Suite is available for a catered event.
For music lovers—The Intercontinental New York Barclay generously donates one of its 86 suites in order to allow recently married couples to toast their wedding in style. The two-night banquet-esque package is dubbed "Worth The Wait," and is priced at $175 per person (with a minimum of 40 attendees). Inside a Chrysler-facing suite, guests are treated to a one-hour cocktail reception, four-course sit-down dinner, champagne toast, open bar, rainbow wedding cake, 50-minute Oasis Day Spa couples massage—oh, and a serenade by New York's gay chorus, the Stonewall Chorale (above).
For relaxation—Meanwhile, six blocks north, The London NYC is also offering up one of its suites, but this time, for more...um, intimate pursuits. The "Celebrate Love" package ($855 per night) includes a 60-minute in-room couples massage, followed by an assortment of canapés delivered from Gordon Ramsay's kitchen downstairs. And just for good measure, a double serving of The London, a grapefruit, gin, Lillet, and champagne cocktail—to ensure extra comfort in (or out of) those complimentary plush robes.
